User Reviews

Addictive and hilarious
13 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

My first telenovela experience has been awesome. Not only is this show completely over the top, naive, silly and also totally lacking logic, it is extremely entertaining and a great way to brush up your basic Spanish... Whereas most daytime drama tends to lack self-irony and a plot proceeding rapidly enough, this show will get you hooked and make your day!

" The Bold and the Beautiful" has obviously had a very heavy influence on this show, but Mi Gorda Bella is much more refreshing and exciting than its predecessor. Stephanie Forrester, you got nothing on Olimpia Mercouri.
